|The Misadventures of a SAHM|
I'm trying to sit here and relax and spend time with hubby. I'm still irked at what happen earlier today and I posted a warning on craigslist about the woman. I am sorry but if you tell someone your going to meet up with them on a day and at a certain time and that person meets at the place agreed upon and than don't show up and poor james was in a pet carrier the whole time thinking we were giving him a new home and nada. I am sorry but that is RUDE! She wouldn't answer my text or calls and when I did finally get through her daugther answered and went to hand the phone to her mom and I got hung up on. WHAT THE HELL! So I decided to worn other people in that area about this woman. Craigslist can be an amazing thing but it can also be full of rude nasty people that don't give a damn about manners and proper etiquette. I mean we were going to be a few moments late and I even called and texted to let her know.
I tried to be postive and think positive about the people in todays society but I don't know what the hell is up. I found Daisy through craigslist and I called the lady when I thought we were going to be even 5 to 15 minutes late. I have even emailed through the week to see how Daisy is doing. And by the way Daisy is doing great eatting puppy food and running around like a puppy. So this weekend should be the take home time for Daisy.
I think we're going to try to let Hercules and James become outdoor cats and at night put them in the garage. And they can only be in the house under supervision, Its just not fair to Cuddles she has lost a lot of weight and I'm not willing to loose her. Cuddles took the place of my kitten Quizno I had to put down at a early age. If it wasn't for James just attacking Cuddles there wouldn't be an issue. I'm just at a lost right now.
Because are Cleos babies and because my husband dragged his feet to get Cleo fixed is the reason we have these two right now. So I am doing my damnest to be responsible and find James a good home. Right now I have FB status through friends trying to help me find him a home. Believe me if this wasn't going on between Cuddles and him I wouldn't have to find him a new home.
BLAH don't really want to talk about it any more. Hercules left the garage and has not came back home. But at least with them both out of the house Cuddles came out from under the couch and ate some food and drank some water and came out for some cuddles. Which was great.
This is just all making me depressed.
Also I'm sick and tired when people call and don't get the answer they like they just hang up. Or about what happen on Saturday. I finally did a post in craigslist about how rude, immature, and disrespectful this is.
When you call someone about their pet don't simply say HI and expect that the person you are calling can read your mind. The proper and respectful way to call is Hello may I speak to _______ (if their name was mentioned in the ad.) If their name was not mentioned in the ad. Than when you call you will say, "Hello I am calling about the (whatever animal your calling about.) Than wait for the person to answer back and from there have a conversation. When it comes to ending the call don't just hang up without saying anything, especially if you don't get the answer you were seeking. A simply thank you have a nice day, thank you for the information, but sorry I'm not interested, or thank you but I will have to think about it.
Yeah I am different I guess. Maybe I expect too much from people who call themselves adults. Who knows but maybe this will make a lightbulb go off in some peoples heads. I don't know, I really don't. I guess I sound like an old lady who screams at small children to get off my lawn but what the hell happen to manners!?!? I'm just tired of it all. I just don't know anymore.
I just got an email about the post I made about people calling or not showing up.
Of course I wrote her back thanking her for her compliment and hoping she has a great week.
I don't know Chris says that I just expect the best out of everyone. Maybe I do but you know I perfer not to judge till you prove to me that I have a reason to not trust you. Sometime I can sense when someone isn't up to something good and all my warning lights go off.
Anyway this weekend is the weekend I get Daisy! I'm super excited and Rocki reaching her two year birthday July 29 at times is calming down while other times she still hyper. But thats her breed and it works well for CJ. Rocki can get rough but if I call her name and say NO she'll look up at me and walk away or calm down.
Daisy I am praying will be come my animal. Rocki is more attentive to CJ and will be submissive to Chris and me I'm more her cuddle, lick on, and come for comfort buddy. Which is fine for me.
I've worked on a couple more outfits for Daisy. I know they will probably be a little big till she gets her full size which is fine I can make smaller ones.
I'm also thinking about getting one of those purse dog carrying bags, so I can take her places with me. Believe me if Rocki was smaller I would do the same but with having a rice burner car a big dog in the car is like a bunch of clowns leaving a mini car. And I'm scared that if Rocki saw something she would try to jump out the car for it. I am raising Daisy how I want to raise her. We did it Chris's way with Rocki and she'll listen to him but not me. So Daisy will be raised how I choose.
Also Chris has decided her nick name will be Taco because he doesn't like the name Daisy. So I said it could be one of her middle names Daisy May Taco, which kinda sounds to me if you say it too fast Daisy does Taco. LOL!
So anyways here are two more dresses, their done in camo and I'm trying to think of phrases to put on the back of them.
The first one is a pink camo. The belt area has round studs and plastic crystal hearts. The edging and the belt are done with black satin ribbon. (Sounds like project runway for the dogs, lol.)
The second one is a green camo. It is being done in a layered skirt fashion. There are four layers of ruffles currently in the pic there are only three. This will either have a green ribbon or black ribbon for the belt area. Its going to have green gems probably along the belt area along with some studs too. Not sure till I get there. I'm one of those people that has an idea will draw it out but as I go along it changes. Even that way with my creative writing. So anyways here is a pic of the green camo.
I'm thinking after the fourth layer of ruffles to sew an edge to the backing and finish it off there.
I also have a pet paw fabric and a skull and cross bone fabric. The paw print I'm going to make into a dress like the zebra one and the skull one I'm going to make kinda punk style.
Today was a decent day weather wise. We went for a walk as a family. Rocki and another dog got barking at each other but she corrected herself on the way back when we had to pass another dog and listened when I told her NO BARKING or NO every time she pulled at the leash. She did pretty good it was funny because she wanted to smell EVERYTHING!!
CJ dressed himself today in his elmo sleeper bottoms, a short sleeve shirt under a long sleeve striped shirt. He's pretty funny now because he wants to wear clothes lately which is GREAT! No more naked kid plastered to the front window waving at the animals or screaming while pointing at a plane. Thank goodness thats only happened a few times but still I sometimes wonder what my neighbors think. Thank goodness they all have kids.
Well this month is the month we enter CJ into the lottery to get into the school district for preschool. We're hoping to get him into the two day a week program but if need be he will have to go three days. He won't start till September and it ends in May and than he'll break and start kindergarden. OYE! these four years has gone by fast. It does have me craving for another baby but I think our family as of now is complete and unless a major ooopps happens we'll stay a family of three with many furbabies tossed in, lol.
Alright this daylight saving thing has really got us all messed up. CJ isn't in bed yet and we are exhausted and ready to crash. Duck tape is starting to look like a nice idea. (not that I would actually do it. For those that can't take a joke.) This does make the days seem like their going faster which is great BUT I just got use to the fall back time and now I gotta get use to the darn fall forward time. COME ON!
Alright I've rattled enough.
